Jason Whitlock, who has decided that he's the foremost authority on race in America, is the latest to stick his nose where it doesn't belong and comment on the Reid/kids/drugs situation... Of course, it's all about race!! Oooh!!
Garrett Reid's admittance that he's a drug dealer and the fact that large quantities of drugs and weapons were found at the Reid home would make their house subject to seizure by the state. The Reids would be targets, not victims.
I suppose Jason Whitlock forgot about all the sympathy Tony Dungy, a black head coach, got when his son's troubles surfaced(which were 1000x times worse, after all SOMEONE DIED.) Not only did he get "a pass" but he got national sympathy and everyone gushed over what a great father and great man Dungy is. Tony Dungy has 4 other children and no one was calling on him to quit his job to "get his house in order."
Before his suicide, Dungy's son had been taken into custody a few months before after an apparent drug overdose. Yet I heard none of the hand wringing and blame directed at Dungy that I hear directed at Reid. I didn't hear anyone chastising Tony Dungy for not quitting and I didn't hear anyone call him "a bad father." Nor should they have. It was a family tragedy and was none of our business. Neither is the Reid situation.
Did Whitlock write an article lambasting Dungy over what a bad father he was after his son's death? Did he write a diatribe about how shameful it was that Dungy was still coaching the Colts in the months following his son's apparent drug overdose and before his suicide? Not that I can find.
In fact, he recently said this of Dungy
But Andy Reid?
So tell me Mr. Whitlock, who has the double standard here?
Apparently, in your case, the media gives "brown people" in the exact same situation(actually worse) a pass. In fact, you call them "strong" and "honorable." You call the white guy "cowardly" and "shameful."
